SADOZ DAILY COMMUNION DAILY DEVOTIONAL OCTOBER 30, 2021 (DEMONOLOGY: POSSESSION)
TOPIC: DEMONOLOGY: POSSESSION
Passage: Mark 5:1-13
“And cried with a loud voice, and said, what have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not.”
Demonic possession happens when a demon took the ownership of a person’s body, soul and spirit, the person will totally be unconscious of what he/she is doing, he won’t have power over himself; a good example of a demon possessed is in our Bible passage for today. Can you imagine a man living inside a tomb? In fact no one could approach him.
He always cut himself with stones. I’m sure you can picture the man. My question is: can a reasonable man with his senses behave that way? Definitely, NOT! This signifies that the man is under the influence of a power greater than himself. That’s an attribute of a possessed person. In v7, he saw Jesus afar off and immediately worshiped Him, why? He knows that his boss is around, as the demons have power over the man spirit, so also Jesus have power over them.
And that is why a Christian can’t be demon possessed because you are Jesus possessed. Jesus is living in you through the Holy Spirit that dwells in you, so you can’t be demon possessed. I have not said demons do not afflict believers; we shall discuss that in the next Saturday edition. More so, you can deliver those demon possessed fellows around you with the name of Jesus.
A man was told that his uncle was insane. He went home, put him in his vehicle and said; let’s see the demon that will possess you when I am in the vehicle with you together with Jesus. He drove the man around town and that was how he was totally healed. The Name is demon repellent.
PYP: Use the Name to dislodge the devil now.
